Great Adaptations

Collection
Ever since its inception in the late 1800s, the cinema has taken its stories from sources as varied as the high literature of classical Russian symbolist Fyodor Dostoyevski and Italian nobleman Giuseppe Tommasi di Lampedusa, the fairy tales and myths like that of King Arthur's round table or Jason and the Argonauts, and the thrillers of James M Cain and romances of Fannie Hurst from the pulp fiction stands. Check the list below for a rundown of big screen adaptations, and see if you can tell your Graham Greene from your Rumer Godden, or your Rainer Maria Rilke from your William Faulker.

Hitchcock in Britain

Collection
Alfred Hitchcock is probably the most famous cinema director of the 20th century. Yet his most famous films were made in Hollywood, with a glamourous cast including Grace Kelly, James Stewart, Doris Day, Cary Grant, Kim Novac. But Hitchcock's true masterpieces are the films he made before being lured stateside. Such iconic titles as THE LADY VANISHES, THE 39 STEPS, THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH... It was the individualistic style, pace and irreverence of these films which got Hitch noticed in Hollywood. Now you too can see where the legend began.


Japanese Masters

All Time Greats
Before the work of Japanese Masters such as Ozu, Kurosawa, Mizoguchi and Ichikawa trickled into film festivals around the world, little was seen of the Japanese way of life. Here is a collection of cinema from the Land of the Rising Sun which took the film world by storm.
